The Digital Cultural Heritage and Europeana (DCHE) Expert Group reviews and discusses policies for digital cultural heritage. In particular, assists the European Commission in monitoring progress and assessing the impact of the implementation of the European Commission Recommendation on digitising and digital preservation and related Council Conclusions (.pdf).
Moreover, the Group provides high quality advice on specific policy issues where such advice is important for the development of EU policies and legislation.
A sub-group on Europeana of the DCHE Expert Group has been established to provide the DCHE with advice on certain aspects of the Europeana Digital Service Infrastructure. This includes Europeana’s general objectives, governance, strategic plan for 2020-2025, evolution and sustainability. The sub-group on Europeana has 12 members: 8 members appointed following an open call for applications, and 4 members appointed by nominations of Member States.
For the full list of expert group and sub-group members, please check the Register of Commission Expert groups and other similar entities.
The mandate came to an end 30 June 2021. In order to reflect new tasks the Commission Expert Group on the common European Data Space for Cultural Heritage succeeded this group.
